Couldn't be Better!
by Mark Sibree
Our visit to the Antarctic Peninsula could not have been better. Even the weather teamed up to provide a great experience. We had a calm Drake Passage South and maybe a bit less so going North. The experience of a stark Antarctic with many different forms of wildlife will stay for a long time. The knowledge of the seasoned and highly qualified Expedition crew was first rate with on-the-spot commentaries about marine animals, birds, geology, history etc. There was a constant emphasis on safety and making a minimal impression on the pristine environment. The 113 passengers were of all ages and mixed well; few were "cruise ship" types, most were there for as a first experience on ship and many were academic or professional of an independent mind. Food and accommodation exceeded expectations.
